News |

Our first ever Adelaide Pitch Conference was a terrific success that exceeded all expectations. Out of the 43 attendees, 27 people were asked by major Australian 11707477_10207274789732596_7447326900583752832_n 11781709_10207274790292610_2708259814753724135_n 11742633_10207257807828059_8896290526218653873_n 11058000_10207274791532641_9013362248238797281_npublishers to submit their manuscript – most to more than one publisher! Everyone involved did an outstanding job of pitching to the publishers, who were impressed with the quality of what they heard and the event itself. South Australian writers should be very proud of themselves.

Each of the forty three participants spent time with their assigned group leader to hone their pitch and turn it into a compelling and enticing overview of their manuscript.

We were extremely blessed to have visiting publishers: Random House Australia, Simon & Schuster, Penguin, Hachette, Pan MacMillan.

Thank you to the group leaders: Victoria Purman, Kevin O’Brien and our New York visitor, Tim Tomlinson from New York Writers Workshop.

Due to the incredible success of this event, we’re already in the planning stages of the next one, so get started! Be sure to sign up to our enews list to be informed of the next one.
